Mashing up songs with other pop culture entities is quite common on the internet. A lot of times it involves combining a raunchy rap song with, say, a children’s programming, for the sake of humor via juxtaposition. Now, not all of these videos are good, but some of them are quite inspired. One of the best YouTube video makers in this vein is the man known as Mylo The Cat. He’s got a new video out, and while it’s a little different than his others, it’s still pretty great.
Usually what sets Mylo The Cat, known in normal life as Adam Schleichkorn, apart is how well he lines up the movement of mouths with the lyrics. He does this particularly well with puppets, as this mashup of The Muppets and the Beastie Boys’ “So What’cha Want” shows. His new video also involves Muppets and the Beastie Boys, but he’s taken a different approach this time.
The song is question is “Sabotage,” which has one of the most iconic music videos of all-time. This video is more inspired by said music video than the song. Mylo The Cat has mashed up the Sesame Street movie Follow That Bird with the Beastie Boys song, and it works really well. He’s effectively turned Follow That Bird into an action movie, and it’s delightful.
If you’ve seen the music video for Sabotage, and who hasn’t, you’ll definitely want to check this out.
